The Procter & Gamble Co., Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, has announced a long-term environmental sustainability vision that includes powering its plants with 100% renewable energy, using 100% renewable or recycled materials for all products and packaging, having zero consumer and manufacturing waste go to landfills, and maximizing resource conservation. The new vision provides P&G with a long-term framework to guide its sustainability decisions and goal-setting.

P&G will implement a series of 10-year sustainability goals to focus company efforts, incrementally improve the organization's environmental performance, and hold P&G accountable against its long-term sustainability vision. The first set of 10-year sustainability goals will be delivered by 2020. The company will report progress against these goals on an annual basis.
